I have a desktop PC and a laptop. I would like to get rid of my desktop to make more space. I tend to use my laptop most often but there are files on my desktop hard-drive I will want to refer to from time to time. What is the easiest way of doing this? i.e. can I (when needed) attach my tower to my laptop and search for a file on tower hard-drive and then copy it to my laptop. My ultimate aim is to one day never need to refer back to my tower as I will have everything I need on my laptop.
The solution I would suggest is either an external hard drive, or a hard drive enclosure for the desktop's hard drive. That way, you'll have all the files on one small device, and it also would make a good backup solution.
